Ride Your Bike, Visit City Chickens!
Would you like to take a lazy weekend bike ride AND get familiar with small flocks of Brooklyn farm animals? Please join us on July 10th for the second City Chicken bike tour in NYC, and the first in Brooklyn.
You will learn from Brooklyn chicken keepers about raising chickens, building coops, and how they integrate their chickens into community gardens, backyard gardens and a rooftop farm. Why chickens? Chickens provide eggs and manure, eat pests, weeds and kitchen scraps, till the soil, and inspire curiosity and joy in kids of all ages. This tour is offered in partnership between Just Food and Transportation Alternatives. Eric Thomann and Owen Taylor of Just Food will lead the tour.
Saturday, July 10th 10am-2pm (end time may change)
Tour will be 8.5 miles long. It begins in Prospect Lefferts Gardens, Brooklyn and ends in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. For the exact starting address, please RSVP. Please only RSVP if you can commit to coming, and if you must cancel, please let us know. We can only accept 50 people on the tour! The starting address will be made available to you via email during the week of June 28.
Bring water and a bag lunch. Some snacks and refreshments will be provided by Transportation Alternatives.
